Booked!

30 Sep

As part of my Year 10 Crime Fiction unit, I would also like to introduce students to non-television Crime Fiction texts.  As such, I plan to put together a selection of extracts from a range of Crime Fiction texts, and ask students to identify key features of the genre.  I also hope to be able to use these extracts as stimulus for creative writing, with students adding their own flair to existing narratives.

Possible texts from which I could draw extracts include: L.A ConfidentialAnd Then There Were NoneA Time to KillThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, one of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich, one of the Sherlock Holmes books, and perhaps The Life and Crimes of Harry Lavender.
